The first in a new series of releases from Pale Wizard Records, entitled »Beyond The Pale: Volume One«. The concept for this exciting venture is to pay homage to classic artists in a contemporary style using often unexpected musicians.

For this first chapter in the series, we are delighted to present to you a transatlantic meeting between two heavyweights of the fuzz/desert/stoner/psychedelic/heavy rock community as they re-imagine two of Kate Bush’s most iconic tracks.

First up, the UK’s Sergeant Thunderhoof deliver a stunning and brooding version of 1985’s »Cloudbusting« from the best-selling album »Hounds Of Love«. Recorded during lockdown, this track sees the band pushing their musical boundaries whilst retaining their signature heavy groove. From the soaring, reverb laden vocals to the heavy slabs of guitar and fuzzy bass, this song exemplifies The Hoof’s fascination with incorporating pop sensibilities with the darker tones of their previous material.

Taking on the challenge of completing the B-Side for this project is the multi-instrumentalist Tony Reed, most commonly known as guitarist and vocalist for US heavy rock titans Mos Generator. Choosing to take on the complex and avant-garde song »Sat In Your Lap« from Kate’s 1982 LP »The Dreaming«. This song showcases Tony’s distinct musicality and deep understanding of melody and structure.

»Beyond The Pale: Volume One« featuring Tony Reed of Mos Generator and Sergeant Thunderhoof will be available in 3 vinyl colours. Each one is themed around a certain era of Kate Bush’s work.
• The blue and white variant is entitled the ‘Hounds Of Love’ edition and is limited to 175 copies.
• The brown and white variant is entitled the ‘Dreaming’ edition and is limited to 175 copies.
